Black panthers and witches!

Meet my dear friend, Marie Godley! We’ve traveled a long path together, got each other’s backs when needed and shared so many writing secrets that I stopped counting a long time ago. Marie is an expert of shape shifters, so if you love all things magical, spiced up with shape shifter panthers, her new book, Janalya, might be your next read! Please, give her a warm welcome!

media picThank you, Jen! I’m Marie Godley and I live in the south of England, luckily enough near the sea. My family and the scenery here are the inspiration for some of my characters and stories.I started writing whilst I was working in a school library but I now write full time, except looking after my family, of course! My books range in ages from under fives to teenagers. I like having a fantasy element to my stories because it allows you to use your imagination, also I am a big kid at heart.

Jen invited me over to her blog today to tell you about some shape shifters – we all know how much she likes them, her brilliant Shape Shifter series of books are loved by many – but mine are different. Mine are Shatara: panthers.

Shatara have lived for many years, isolated and content but it seems not all of them think the same. A small group has gone rogue. They have left to see what’s in the outside world and to better their position and status.

Meet the pack:

JARMIL: He’s the leader. Cold, hard and ruthless. He thinks he’s superior to all other beings, and rules by intimidation.

KatsuoKATSUO: Angry and disillusioned, he left with Jarmil to escape his violent father, but he’s  discontented with the way things are now.

NAHUEL: The youngest member of the pack. He’s been following Jarmil since he was a teenager. Not treated well by the others, except Katsuo, they are friends.


Janalya cover-2What will happen to them? Find out in Janalya.


I want to thank Jen for inviting me onto her blog today, and thank you for visiting with me. I hope you enjoyed meeting my pack. I look forward to hearing what you think about them.


Thank you, Marie! The pleasure was mine!

About jenniferloiske

Jennifer Loiske lives in Finland in Naantali, which is a small sunny town on the southwest coast. She is a pre-school teacher by profession but she stayed at home when her youngest daughter suffered brain fever, which developed severe epilepsy in 2004. She is a workaholic Teen/Young Adult author, who loves dark fantasy, teen movies, chips and candies and warm sunny days. She’s also very keen on charity work and a big part of her royalties goes to the charity; mainly to help families with epileptic children but also to the epilepsy units in the hospitals. As a huge fan of dark novels Jennifer's bookshelf is full of books from L.J. Smith, Alyson Noel, Stephanie Meyer, Chloe Neill, Michelle Rowen, Jennifer L. Armentrout, Amanda Hocking and Lauren Kate. She’s also a huge fan of music from Evanescence, Linkin Park, Within Temptation, OneRepublic and Disturbed. But her hunger for music is endless and depend on what mood she’s in or what kind of book she’s working on. She can be pretty much an omnivore when it comes to music.
